In case someone is interested I wanted to mention that I just realized I have this ship listed on my website, under the Pol whalers. Oks°y was the former Pol VI, and was equipped in the Persian Gulf for minesweeping, along with Karm°y, which was the former Norwegian whaler Globe V (also listed on my website). Karm°y and Oks°y were part of the British mine sweeping group of 6 vessels station at Khorramshar, Iran.

A number of Norwegian whalers were laid up in South Africa and Trinidad in 1940, then requisitioned by the Royal Navy to be converted to minesweepers. 6 of the whalers in Trinidad arrived Bombay in the fall of 1941 for rebuilding.
